McDonald’s Australia has announced that no more in-restaurant dining will take place.
In response to Australia’s shutdown due to the Covid-19 crisis, McDonalds will only be drive thru or delivery from now on.
“At Macca’s, looking after you, our team and the wider community is our priority, so in line with Government guidance, we’re making a few changes,” McDonald’s said on Facebook.
McDonald’s will close all 1,270 of its restaurants in the UK by the end of Monday, as fears over the spread of coronavirus escalate.
Nando’s has also said it has closed its approximately 400 restaurants in the UK “until further notice”.
Back in Australia, Andrew Gregory, McDonald’s Australia CEO, released this statement:
Our leadership team is meeting daily to assess the situation and ensure our people are safe and supported. I continue to stay close to our restaurants and franchisees, whom directly operate our restaurants, and know we have the right people in the right roles to meet our customers’ needs. In times like these, we take advantage of the global McDonald’s system to learn and benefit from the events occurring overseas. Each day, we continue to access and implement all necessary changes to ensure we can continue to keep serving our customers.
With more than 100,000 employees across the country, we are taking this issue seriously and will continue to respond.
